    I really remember enjoying how this episode found new ways to tell a Star Trek story.

    Aces, really.

    There's not really anything upon rewatch I picked out as flawed about this episode. Imperfect, but with no major blemishes. I really liked how quickly Sisko sussed out that he could play good cop, bad cop with Odo and Rom by pulling that "he's a family friend" card. In general Rom had a good showing here, actually – we learn a lot about our hard luck bartender Quark via his being injured out and subbed by Rom for most of the plot stuff here.
